NJ Gov is DONE with White House Dream>
TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Gov. Chris Christie apologized Thursday for the “abject stupidity” of his staff, insisting he had no idea anyone around him had engineered traffic jams as retribution against the mayor of Fort Lee.
Christie said he fired Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly “because she lied to me” when he demanded weeks ago that anyone who knew anything about the episode come forward.
The governor also arrived at Fort Lee’s municipal building shortly after 4 p.m. to apologize in person to Mayor Mark Sokolich. Christie met with Sokolich, the mayor’s wife and son for about 40 minutes, CBS 2′s Tony Aiello reported.
Emails and text messages released Wednesday suggested Kelly and a top Christie appointee at the Port Authority engineered traffic jams in Fort Lee last September to punish the town’s mayor for not endorsing Christie for re-election last fall.
Finally, the end of a RHINO's ambition to be president is done! Let move on and select a committed conservative, who is vetted on record, to be our next President of the United States.
